What's in the future for games retail?

E3 kicks off this week in LA… and I’m not there. Maybe one year (although I tell myself that every year). With new consoles on the horizon come new and evolving models for buying the games that play on them. But which one is best?
That’s the focus of an article I’ve written over at Kotaku Australia, where I’m guest editing for the week while regular editor Mark Serrels is at E3.
So go and read it now!
(yeah, I’m getting bossy in my old age. Deal with it.)

  1. I rather hope the future for games retail is that it stops existing.
    Retail is a true plague of parasites on the games industry, deliberately destroying the game developers and publishers in order to make greater margin from used sales.
    Sorry, but I side with the people that give me the games I play, than those that exploit it to no benefits on my behalf.

  2. I tend to agree with you Matthew. There may be some convergence of interests between retailers and product creators, but all too often retailers get out of control and start to bite off the hand that is feeding them!
